Travels Together

by Brian Watt

 

Come sail my dear away far off with me

Upon a ship each day we’ll cruise a long

Up north to lands of ice and snow we’ll be

To spy a grizzly’s catch, an eagle’s song

 

Ago we flew o’er ocean swell and wave

To see the sights where fam’ly’s born and lay

Of Scottish lands and Sarah Siddon’s grave

Remembered all as though they were today

 

So two requests I have of you to keep

Each day for you a mem’ry help me make

Each night for me a kiss before we sleep

These things I hope you promise me to make

 

To travelĀ  again, now that is my oath

To love you always; these I promise both

 

Love, Your Bri

To Love A Child

by Brian Watt

 

It was upon the day I saw you born

I knew my heart was lost for now and more

A life-long pledge that day to you was sworn

To feed, to clothe, to love; it was no chore

 

Since then the years have come and gone too fast

From meals, to play, to sleep did make you grow

No time it took and now you’re grown at last

And yet my love remains remarkably so

 

What caused a love like this to come to be?

It is unknown; it is a mystery

It is invisible; nothing to see

It is a miracle; always to be

 

Someday you may a child be giv’n to raise

And then your heart will be within your gaze

 

Love, Dad
